After being a little concerned when walking in that the place was pack to the rafters and having to wait 10 minutes for a table, I though the service was going to take forever. Quite the opposite actually, our waitress was very attentive and quick. Our meals were prompt and delicious. Very impressive!

I love the atmosphere at Hogs Breath Cafe's. So many trinkets to see whilst waiting for your meal. The menu is quite comprehensive. Something to suit most taste buds (at a steak house). We went with the 200gm steak which ended up being sufficient for our appetites. If you are a big steak eater so the larger serve. We had... More

We ate here twice on our recent Cairn’s holidays & on both occasions we were happy with our meals. The slow-cooked steaks were cooked as ordered & there were generous serves of salad & veg. The staff were pleasant & friendly & the service was quick – but we did eat during off-peak periods.

Steak and ribs were good although more fries would have been good. Staff very friendly and attentive. Would go back again.

If you enjoy a great steak this is the place to eat in Cairns. I'm a Cairns local and I eat here every couple of months and each time I go home happy. The servings are on the large side and the steaks are always tender.

I finally went to Hog's Breath with friends last night. I have heard good reports for a long time so I was looking forward to the opportunity to try their famous steak myself. What a disappointment. My steak was tasteless, tough and full of chewy bits I had to leave on my plate. The salad was flat and overdressed (totally... More

Have been to a few different locations of the Hog's Breath and haven't had an unpleasant experience at any of them The food is great every time and the portions are far from average. Great price for what you get, value wise you can't go wrong! Cool atmosphere inside the restaurant, nice decor and neat items all over the walls... More
